Ok we all need hand tools to work on this stuff. Some of us have welders, tool boxes full of tools, cutting torch, buffer, bandsaw, lift, and so on. Some of us don't have near that much. So if you had to pick one tool that your almost 100% sure that you will buy next what would it be? Also what would it be if money wasn't an option?

Can't wait to get great idea's from you guys.

I found a valve grinder for $200 on craigslist today..it has an oiler and everything.. I know you said "if" money is no problem. I think this would be the next thing for me, right after the stripper pole of course.

Since I don't have a welder yet, I'd get a mig welder.

If money was nothin, I'd get a plasma-cam. Used one in the shop class in high school and made all kinds of stuff with it.

That's why I like where I work:D Got a Mazak hv-630 5 axis mill, and most of our other mills have 4th axis chucks. All of our lathes have live milling pockets on the turret. EDM machines. We are talking about getting a water jet :rock: I do some makeshift fabrication and the boss wants to persue it profesionaly

hv-630

A new rubber whip airline as the plastic coil type don't like the heat. For the life of me when I was working I don't know I never took one.
